About

Edgar Degas (1834-1917)

Degas had a passion for moral truth, disliking fine phrases and easy solutions. Like the dancers he painted, he was continually struggling to achieve an ideal of line and form. He spent his time in galleries and was an indefatigable copyist who particularly admired Ingres. It was a strange beginning for an artist who was considered revolutionary when, in fact, he was by nature a Classicist, possibly the last great Classical artist in European painting.
